PDP Crisis Resolved? Atiku Gives Governor Wike Crucial Appointment

Despite the rift between the duo, the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has appointed Governor Nyesom Wike as a member of the Presidential Campaign Organisation (PCO) for the 2023 elections.

The PDP has been battling an internal crisis since the emergence of Atiku as the party’s presidential flag bearer.

After losing the presidential ticket to Atiku and the vice presidential ticket to Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state, Governor Wike and his allies have been demanding the resignation of the PDP national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

Their argument is that it is wrong for both the PDP presidential candidate and the national chairman to come from the same region; the north.

However, Atiku recently told the Wike camp that Ayu cannot be removed and replaced with a southerner unless the PDP constitution is amended.

Amid the unresolved crisis, Atiku on Thursday, September 15, announced the composition of his campaign council.
